Puri. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra, who is being fielded from Odisha’s Puri seat, landed in a controversy when he shared a video of him eating at a village household where a woman is cooking on a chulha.
He has been visiting a lot of places and eating food in the houses of people. Many people have come forward and complained that Sambit doesn’t give prior information of his arrival and so there is always a shortage of food after Sambit leaves.
After getting repeated complaints from People in Odisha about a person eating their food forcefully, Zomato had to clarify in a press conference that Sambit Patra is not their employee and people should not call at Zomato office to register their complaint. Sometime back Zomato was in the news when a delivery boy ate the food ordered by a customer midway on the delivery route. Sambit Patra probably has all such qualities in him, going by the photos coming in where he is seen eating at various places in Odisha rural areas.
It came as a shock to people that Sambit is not a Zomato employee and actually he works for Republic.
